Designed to be as flexible as a modular synthesizer, the MatrixBrute from Arturia is a 100% analog synthesizer that features a 16x16 modulation matrix, 64-step sequencer, and 256 patch memories. The sound engine boasts three analog oscillators with a sub oscillator on oscillators one and two. Additionally, oscillator three doubles as an LFO and can be used as an audio source simultaneously. The noise generator offers white, pink, red and blue noise types. All oscillators, noise source, and external input are blended in the mixer section before routing to the filters. The multi-mode Steiner-Parker filter and the traditional multi-mode ladder filter can be configured in either series or parallel. The synth also includes two additional LFOs with seven waveforms each and three envelope generators with ADSR capabilities on the first two. The third envelope generator offers a DADSR, which creates an abundance of sound shaping and sculpting tools. The Matrix section serves as the heart of the MatrixBrute, allowing for complex modulation routing, step-sequencing, and instant preset recall. The modulation routing allows you to assign any of the 16 modulation sources to any of the 16 modulation destinations. The matrix also functions as a 64-step sequencer with separate step, accent, slide, and modulation steps. The preset mode allows you to recall any of the 256 presets at the touch of a button. The MatrixBrute offers true analog effects to enhance your sonic masterpiece with choices including analog delay, chorus, flanger and analog reverberator. Additionally, the analog effects can be set as modulation destinations in the matrix. The keyboard sports a 49-note velocity-sensitive keybed with aftertouch. On the rear of the synth, there are a number of ports including two expression pedals, one sustain pedal, Gate I/O, and Sync I/O. Additionally, there are 12 CV inputs and outputs which are designed to interface with any standard 1 V/Oct modular synthesizer. The MatrixBrute includes 128 factory presets and ships with a power cord and USB cable.

It's alive and in its allocated spot - man this thing is big, it makes the MatrixBrute look tiny. :lol: Sits well on my stand - it's all solid and the One fits just right flush against the metal bars at the back. Only impressions I've got so far: - I have no fan noise at...
